The Shade Isle Campaign
The paint spectre was a semi-corporeal undead being whose physical form was composed entirely of paints in many different colors. The adventuring company encountered this creature in the Rectory Art Gallery of Shade Abbey (area 0A.7). At first, it seemed to be an ordinary (if abstract and frankly hideous sort of Jackson Pollock knockoff) painting, but then the colors on the canvas animated and tried to grab onto one of the party members and draw him into the painting. This failed; but even as the rest of the party pulled their fellow free, the colors came off the canvas and assumed a ghostly form. The paint spectre was capable of energy-drain, just like an ordinary spectre, and vulnerable to spells and elfsteel weapons, again like an ordinary spectre.
